The Owl

Caitlin Rogers, Staff writer

Caitlin is a senior at Boulder High School and a new member of The Owl. By joining the newspaper, she hopes to use it as an outlet to share interesting stories, dive deeper into topics that interest her, and have a more thorough understanding of journalism. Not only does she like writing, but she plays both club and high school soccer. She started the sport when she was in 4th grade and has continued to love the game more each year. Unless she has soccer practice, she often goes to get boba tea with friends or the swings at North Boulder Park at night with them. Ever since she was young, she’s loved to bake cakes and cupcakes. Her favorite part of the process was decorating and making them look edible-even when they weren’t. One thing that always made them edible was topping them with green grapes because they are perfect for any occasion and always bring joy.
